Settings location for the enabled MDGs and custom toolbar
« on: September 14, 2017, 12:29:31 am »
Hi,

I'm trying to identify when EA stores local custom data so a team can deploy a fully custom EA configuration throughout the team.
Perspectives and EA 13 ribbons are located in Sparx appdata folder.

I know some details are also located in the registry, however I'm trying to find the following:
- list of enabled/disabled MDG Technologies updated via CONFIGURE > Technology > Manage
- custom toolbars with added commands via START > Workspace > Preferences > Customize > Commands.

Thanks
Guillaume

At a guess I'd foster the Registry for that.

From memory, I agree with qwerty.  But when you definitively find out can you post here?  I have a similar requirement coming up soon.

It's in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sparx Systems\EA400\EA\OPTIONS] MDG_TECHNOLOGY_STATUS which contains semicolon separated list of <Tech>=<Val> entries where <Val> is 0 or 1.
